K8MM-V: Will this video card be compatible?
« on: 24-October-09, 17:37:37 »

Hi,

I'm interested in purchasing a new video card for my K8MM-V mobo as I recently upgraded to Windows 7 and I would like to run Aero. I have found quite a gem for $48 that I would love to purchase but I'm afraid that it isn't compatible.

Can someone confirm? Could you possibly make a suggestion for a cheap card that will be able to run Aero if this one isn't compatible?

Thanks

EDIT: Would this be a good substitute? http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814187042

Your board is AGP! So you need an AGP card.

But I doubt any of the current selling does Aero.
PCI won't be fast enough and PCIe won't fit.

I'm not normally in favour of recommending other manufacturers cards, but due to a lack of MSI cards to choose from, I'd suggest this:

Or if your budget doesn't stretch that far:

My MediaLive has integrated Geforce 6150 with 128mb VGA RAM, and that runs Aero fine in Windows Vista, so the 6200 should be able to do it also. ;-))
